Merry Christmas greetings from Uncle Earl and smoke school schedule

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done in earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,

The power, and the glory,

For ever and ever.


I pray that you, your family, and friends are rejoicing during this Christmas Season. I had a near death experience in July due to complications of diabetes and a chronic sinus infection. After the 3 day ordeal I realized that I had some choices to make, basically to find the Lord’s will or die. I chose to live life and live it abundantly. I was once called to preach the Gospel. Many are called but few are chosen. I agreed to minister once again to pray for the sick and minister for those in prison. I also agreed to evaluate each situation and try to do what Jesus would do. I try to perform one random act of kindness each day for strangers I meet. For example I have paid for their meals and even helped a blind person cross the street. I prayed for one young lady and the Lord healed her of cancer in her ear. I actually saved a homeless former Navy Seabee’s, life by taking him in and providing him with food and water for a week.

In exchange for these minor good deeds and my renewed faith, the Lord has blessed me abundantly. He answered my prayer and found me a new woman who loves me for who I am and not for my money. Steph is my sunshine, my only sunshine. I have learned that there are two things that money can’t buy. That is true love and home grown tomatoes. Sometimes I felt better when I had no money. I remember selling my blood twice a week just to get by. The love of money is the root to all evil. But now I have 17 families who depend on me for a living. My greatest chore is to learn to forgive those that have trespassed against me. This includes my ex-wife and someone that I loved and treated like a son.

The Lord has many more blessings on the horizon. I have felt led to order 6 more state of the art smoke machines. I opened an antique store in Antique Alley in West Monroe. I named the store Johnnie Claire’s Treasures after my mother, who taught me everything I ever knew about customer service at her Nu-2-U store in Clarks Louisiana. For 30 years momma brought junk and sold antiques. After I retired from Louisiana DEQ in 2001, my momma and I started Whitlow Smoke School and traveled together from sea to shiny sea. We also moved our Whitlow Enterprises office to Antique Alley. Our new office has room to grow. I have paid my dues. I have worked in the environmental, health, and safety field for half a century and made a living blowing smoke for 30 years. I forgot more than they will ever know. I feel like we are on the verge of becoming the largest smoke school in the world. I have plans for new smoke schools in every state including Alaska and Hawaii. We are growing because we love the Lord and we treat others like we would love to be treated. Please come join us.
